bitpim [ -c file | -d dir ] [ -f model ] [ -p device ] [ bitfling ]
[ debug ] [ cli-command ]
This manual page documents briefly the bitpim command.
BitPim allows you to view and manipulate data on many phones from LG,
Samsung, Sanyo, and other manufacturers that use Qualcomm CDMA chips.
Depending on your phone model, you may be able to access the phone
book, the calendar, wallpapers, ring tones, and the filesystem.
A summary of options is included below.
Read configuration from file.
-d dir Read configuration from dir/.bitpim.

Communicate with the phone via the device ("port") device.
Run as bitfling(1).
debug Print debugging information to standard output and standard
Interact with the phone’s filesystem via a command-line
interface. The command must be a single (quoted) argument, and
can take any of the following forms:
cli Bring up an interactive shell, allowing all of the below
commands as well as a few others (cd dir, cdu, exit, and
pwd or equivalently cwd).
cp src [...] destdir
Copy files to, from, or within the phone.
ll dir [...]
Print a detailed listing of the specified phone directory
ls dir [...]
Print a brief listing of the specified phone directory or
mkdir dir [...]
Create a directory on the phone.
rm file [...]
Remove one or more files from the phone.
rmdir dir [...]
Remove one or more directories, which must already be
empty, from the phone.
Please note that none of these commands accepts wildcards. To
indicate that an argument denotes a file or directory on the
phone, you can prefix it with phone:; this is mainly relevant
for cp, which performs phone-to-PC copies unless otherwise
The default configuration file.
